I’ve played in a long time, even before I had won even when I had won BMW, this is the best I’ve ever felt. I’m excited. “Norway’s Viktor Hovland shot the best round of the day, a 65, to advance to a tie for third place at 271 (13 under). He recorded five birdies in the first nine and seven of the day.” I shot very well. today and I hit a lot of good iron shots that ended up close to where I didn’t have to do much to birdie, “said Hovland.” Yeah, I made some bad shots with the iron today, and I felt like I struggled to cut them into the correct locations of the holes. But the few bad shots with the iron that I did, I was actually able to make some really good saves and some putts for par. ”Also at 271 was Cameron Tringale, who had three birdies in the first nine but lost ground in the last nine, with two. bogeys to go with two birdies.
